LITTLEWICK GREEN: Kirk Graham smashed 114 for Littlewick Green as they beat Monks Risborough to keep pace with leaders Pinner.
Having elected to bat Graham spearheaded a fine batting display from the visitors who put on 264-4 in 45 overs.
A fine first wicket stand with Richard Thomas (67) set the tone for a dominant 78 run win.
Wickets tumbled in the opening overs of Risborough’s reply as Green got themselves firmly on top. Resistance came further down the order from B Khan (74) but it was too little too late as Green restricted them to 186-9 in 45 overs.
PINKNEYS GREEN: Pinkneys Green picked up a restorative five wicket win over Knotty Green on Saturday, to put last week’s defeat to Hurley firmly behind them.
Knotty Green began well at the crease, with Jonathan Patel scoring 63.
However, from a position of strength things quickly turned sour as they were skittled for 176 in less than 30 overs.
Will Heyes was Green’s chief wicket taker with 5-42.
Vinay Mopur (67) and Jack Stemp (41) then played the strongest hands as Green eased to 181-5 in 25 overs.

Chasing 242-6 from 45 overs, Braywood managed just 40.4 overs before being skittled for 189. Nasser Mahmood was their top scorer with 68.
HURLEY: Hurley were let down by their fragile batting once again as they lost by 70 runs to Pinner in Chilterns League Division 1 on Saturday.
Last week’s win over Pinkneys Green proved another false dawn as Hurley shelled catches and failed to build an innings to challenge Pinner’s 207.
Bob Harrison and Dhawan (67) were initially kept quiet by Joban Singh (0-29) but Narvencar (43) smashed Pinner to their total, despite the best efforts of Ravi Singh (3-61).
Hurley were soon back in familiar batting territory at 66-6 and only Magga Singh (39) and debutant Gurdev Singh (40) offered any kind of threat, with Phil Ridgeway (20no) left high and dry as the hosts were shot out for 137.
LITTLE MARLOW: Little Marlow came up a little short in Saturday’s clash with Braywood 2nds on Saturday.
Tahir Rashid (68) and Naresh Mudragada (42) put on 81 for the fifth wicket as Marlow finished on 221 all out after 44 overs. Atisham Ali and Raza Farooq claimed 4 victims a piece.
A fine 49 from Haroon Saleem left the outcome in the balance with Umar Islam having taken six wickets, but Masood (24no) and Hassan Ali (20no) guided their team to a two wicket win.
